The TCDSB Literacy Team is dedicated to on-going professional learning in literacy.  We view literacy as much more than reading and writing and are collaborating with colleagues across our system to explore and deepen our understanding of literacy in the 21st century. 

This year we are working with teachers in a variety of ways: in Literacy Inquiry Teams, in our Professional Learning Series, and in coaching relationships.

In this blog we will share our learning while highlighting our ongoing work with our teachers. Our reflections will focus on student learning, literacy practices, the Ontario curriculum and professional resources.

We will be updating our blog on a regular basis. Be sure to visit often for resource suggestions, links to videos and articles and  practical classroom strategies.
